Sharing my TOUR Aspirations

42 posts in this topic

Hi, my name is Jin Jeon. Like many that have had the opportunity to play competitive golf, I’m interested in pursuing a professional career . My story is a bit different and I’d like to share it with you.

Growing up, I played most sports but wasn’t interested in golf. I gravitated towards baseball and got good enough to play at a semi-professional level and get offered Division 1 scholarships. But eventually, reality caught up to me as my college coach told me I would sit my first year and it’d be an uphill climb to earn regular playing time at a mid to high level division 1 college . It was a hard pill to swallow and I contemplated transferring to other schools to have the opportunity to play but before I pulled that trigger, I was re-introduced to golf.

In the winter of 2010 and into the spring and summer of 2011, I started to gain an interest in the biomechanics and the psychology of the game (eventually I reached out to Geoff Jones aka “slicefixer” in 2012). All of a sudden, the passion and competitiveness I had for baseball transferred into golf. I wanted to compete and play in tournaments and I started to compete in local sanctioned events in the summer of 2012.

I graduated in 2013 with an Industrial Engineering degree, and more importantly (in my mind) full reign and time to commit to improving my golf game . Every facet of my game individually and in practice can, at the very least, match up to a professional golfer . I don’t mean a PGA Tour player , but I have played with eGolf, Hooters, Web.com , and PGA Professionals and have beaten them in stroke play. I have the game, desire, and focus to make it. But I understand that there are many, many others who feel the same way who hit it, chip it, and putt it better than I do. Despite that, I have confidence in myself to make an impact in this game.

My tournament results are nothing to write home about. The only wins I've registered are club championships. This year especially, I've been very disappointed in my results. I’ve been playing well but, not unlike the Dallas Cowboys , I find ways to make the game much more difficult than it is. I found ways to turn 68, 69 into 74, 75, 76. I’ve been able to “put it together” in practice rounds and rounds on my home course but haven’t yet been able to do it in tournament rounds. The bottom line is that I need more experience and tournaments under my belt. I've played this game seriously for three years now and have played in less than 20 tournaments.

I want an opportunity to develop and improve my game. I want to relocate to a southern state to be able to play year round and play in as many tournaments as I can. There are mini tours that have one or two-day events where I can quickly get accustomed to tournament golf and be able to play in 50+ tournaments a year.

Yes, it’s been a long story. I hope you’ve learned a little about me. The point of posting this here is to reach out to as many people as I can to find any interest in supporting me financially on my journey. If you are interested, please PM me and I will give you my email. I have a sponsorship proposal written and ready to distribute . As I said earlier, I am different than most that are going on this journey. I won’t and can’t be rash and say I'm destined to be on the PGA Tour and guarantee 10x payback. But I do have an Industrial Engineering degree from a reputable university and a means to pay you back if you decide to invest. Thank you for reading, please view the links below to see me on the range.

You've got a solid swing and I understand that people do this, but you're pushing your luck thinking a bunch of strangers online are going to give you money.  I've got buddies that play on those tours and they all receive financial support but it's from their fathers friends that they have actually played with or older guys that they play with on occasion that are members at their own courses.  I'd advise going down one of those routes, people are going to want to know you personally and play golf with you before supporting you financially.

And you should probably post videos where you're not wearing air force ones

You've got to be kidding me, right? In what kind of delusional world do people think this marketing strategy would work?

I feel like the last paragraph of the OP derailed any opportunity this thread had of being worthwhile.  I would encourage the OP to delete it and instead first seek swing feedback and tips/connections for career development.  It's a good lookin' swing to my untrained eye, but the request is a non-starter.

Not only that, but contribute in the forum. Post in threads, be helpful and active. Discuss, learn.

LOL.    Money grabbing scheme spread to forums now?   I am surprised this has not been taken down by moderators yet.

BTW, I am an inspiring curling player and want to represent USA in future Olympics.   But those stones cost arm and a leg and I can't buy them b/c I have 7 adopted children I am trying to feed.   Can you help?   If you can, please send money to Red Cross.   Thanks for listening.

Jin, your odds of earning meaningful sponsorships through an internet forum are going to be pretty slim to begin with. But I can damn near guarantee you that they will be zero, if you don't at least pretend to care/contribute to the site that you are soliciting through. If my first introduction to someone involves them telling me why they need my money, you can be pretty sure that will be someone I have little to no interest in dealing with ever again.

Just make sure NOT to make those long putts. We're just trying to get them close.

    • What would a PGA Tour player shoot at your home course?
      Here's some more below about the lowest you might expect - even on an easy course. I think this is largely true, but pros don't tend to play a lot on 'easy' courses so there doesn't seem to be even much anecdotal stuff. The quote below describes what's considered the 'perfect round'. I guess you could also consider a 'go-for-green' perfect round where you also hit all the par 5's in two and one-putted those for eagle for a 'go-for-green perfect' score of 50. Obviously the likelihood of doing this in a single round defies the essence of golf, but it's a good a hard theoretical lower limit that probably depends more on the par than the course rating. Likely the odds grow exponentially as the percentage of birdied / eagled holes rises. I think we can discount albatrosses as a 'perfect round' option. Most tournament pro scores don't get below 56 and 59 with about an 80/20 rule separating the more frequent 59s from the 58's. That's 4-5 strokes (assuming par 72) over the 'perfect round' and 8-9 over the 'go-for-green perfect round', each of which represent grabbing about 75% and 61% respectively of the potential shots under par realistically available. I suppose a short par-4 would add another potential eagle opportunity, but we'll discount that as I'm not sure how universal they are. The lowest tournament round was 55 (par of 71) by one single golfer out of how many total tournament rounds by pros and plus HCP amateurs over the years? So while 55 is humanly achievable it's super rare and likely represents the lower limit of any possible likelihood. That would put the absolute lowest threshold around 17.8 below the course rating (72.8) and 16 below par. So there's a lot of room to go below even a low course rating or par of 70. I don't think the expected scores would get too squished and the distribution would still likely be normal in shape. The thing that is probably unrealistic is how narrow the range of expected scores is. The field is extremely consistent, but I think a single individual player (whose average score is the same as the field) will have a score variance significantly larger than the field. I think the mode likely stays the same while the distribution flattens / spreads out more into the tails with a little more probability to both go low and high and less certainty of shooting within a stroke or two of the mode / most likely score.  
    • Difference in These Putters Besides Price?
      My mind is made up, don't confuse me with facts! Someone beat me to it, but there are obvious differences in the appearance of those two putters. The most obvious is that the alignment marks don't align! And the mark on the instep (if that's what it's called), looks like it was hacked in with a machete or maybe a cold chisel. Never mind that it looked like it laid in a barn for 10 years! Hey, I'm a senior and retired, so I'm always on the lookout for a bargain, but I refuse to buy cheap crap just because it's cheap. I remember a radio show I heard years ago where the discussion was about value vs cost. A woman called in and said she didn't have a lot of money, so she couldn't afford to buy "cheap". The host asked her what she meant. She replied that buying cheap stuff that does not perform and wears out early is more expensive in the long run than buying top quality goods that do the job and will last! Admittedly, they weren't talking golf equipment here, but the idea is the same.
